Poor engineering in abundance
By twomacho on
Vehicle2003 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewBought new - lots of price incentives - good initial reports, including CU. GM just doesn't get it. Poor brake / rotor design - expensive to fix. Flasher problems should have been a recall - hard to get at - poor design. Radio buttons show "wear" - mats slip - ash tray comes out doesn't go back in easily. Glove box opens - bottom falls out. Just the kind of garbage you never see in a Toyota or Honda who "sweat the details". GM deserves to go under - they have had years to get it right and disappoint.
Best FeaturesPrice. Smooth, reliable transmission. Adequate V6 power. Pretty good paint / exterior finish.
Worst FeaturesToo many things go wrong that shouldn't. ie - the dash has to be taken apart to replace a defective flasher. V6 Engine way too old - 3.1 liter should have 100 more horses.
